Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
The Sedona show is held on a baseball field, at the High School. It's a nice venue with all the booths on grass. You cannot drive on the grass so you have to dolly your work to your space, not too bad.
I made money at this show selling my southwest art (Shamans) in the price range of $95 to $1,800.
Load in is the day before the show. Load out is a bit more difficult. The show closes as the sun is setting and it gets dark fast - you just need to take your time and hope you get onto the field to load out because there is always a line of vans itching to get in.
Weather played a part in the 2016 show with rain on Saturday, although not too much, but the lightning storm was a bit nerve racking. People still came out, but not as many as we would like. Sunday was beautiful and sunny with a lot more people.
It's a tourist area, but you don't get a lot of tourists (my opinion). Most of the patrons lived in or near Sedona and go to the show every year. I would recommend this show if you have artwork related to the southwest or have a product that "fits" into the southwest lifestyle.
The city of Sedona is about 2 or 3 miles from the venue - lots of restaurants and shops there where the tourists hang out. Most tourists in Sedona go for the activities in the area, like hiking, jeep tours, etc. I will apply to do the show again this year. I don't know what hotels cost in the area because I usually do AirBnb.
My neighbor at the 2016 show was a jeweler and he sold well on Sunday. He was staying with his wife and kids in the brand new hotel right next to the show and he told me it was $400 per night, ouch.
Good luck out there !
